Greetings Everyone!

I am honored and humbled to be the principal of Rockbridge County High School. As I embark on my first year, I look forward to partnering with our students, staff, families, and community members to make sure all students reach their fullest academic potential.  I have been part of the Rockbridge County community for over 50 years, and I appreciate what our area has to offer. 

I will be working with an outstanding team of highly skilled and caring educators that are dedicated to preparing our students for the future and the careers that have yet to be invented. Our student-centered approach will challenge them with rigorous problem-based activities, preparing them to be productive citizens and future leaders. RCHS offers an eclectic choice of courses that include advanced placement and dual enrollment options, along with a wide variety of fine arts and career and technical education programs. We value all types of skills and talents at RCHS.

As principal I will work to provide a safe, non-threatening environment that fosters mutual respect and appreciates diversity. As partners in our students’ education, we will work together to support and encourage our students to be active in classroom activities and extracurricular activities. Parents and guardians are always welcome at RCHS, and families are encouraged to be active participants in the educational process. Students greatly benefit when adults take an active role in their life.

I look forward to working with you and your children. If I can ever be of help, please feel free to come by the office, call me at 540-463-5555, or email mike_craft@rockbridge.k12.va.us.

Together, WE are Rockbridge!

Mike Craft
Principal
Rockbridge County High School
